Zack Greinke shelled for six runs in loss Tuesday

Zack Greinke pitched five innings, giving up six runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out two in Kansas City’s 9-7 loss to Houston on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Greinke had a lead going into the 5th inning but two home runs lead to a 3-run inning that put Kansas City behind for good. It also snapped Greinke’s bid for three straight wins since returning from the 15-day IL on June 24. The loss drops to Greinke to 2-5 on the year and Tuesday’s poor outing raised his ERA nearly half a run from 4.38 to 4.85. Greinke didn’t miss many bats on Tuesday, tying a season high with 10 hits allowed and his low strike out total (34 in 68 2/3 innings) make him hard to rely on for fantasy managers, especially given what we have come to expect from the 38-year old former Cy Young winner and two-time ERA champion with his 219 career wins. His next start come Sunday against the Guardians.
